Natalie and Her Volunteer

Kris told Natalie about my art. Natalie is Kris' son, Travis, girl friend. (Did you follow that?)

She wanted an illustration of the two of them together. On the list of themes that I could include in the drawing is her love of fashion, shoes and pursers, his love of the Tennessee Volunteers, and their love for miniature dachshunds.

At first I thought about putting them on the red carpet with paparazzi flashing cameras all around them. But this drawing was meant to be a gift for him, and that concept seemed to lean towards her interest.

So, I decided to draw them walking on the campus of U of T - that's a campus building in the background, and two little weaner dogs dachshunds with them. The pups sport the name of the mascot of the university: Smokie.

I like how it turned out. What do you think of my purse and shoe design? My little bit of Project Runway.
